Today in 1959 Johnny Horton hit No. 1 (and stayed there for TWO months) on both the Pop AND Country Charts int he US with 'The Battle of New Orleans'.
I grew up on Johnny Horton, my grandmother loved him and I loved everything my grandmother loved! Oh, so many memories of those truck trips listening to Johnny and oh yes, lets not forget Boxcar Willie!..another day.... Another song I really like from Johnny just so happens to be his other biggest hit: North to Alaska. I was told that I should put this song into my set list, however I am not sure folks are ready for the NettyFIED version. LMAO! I always try to find a live video of the Artist however this time I am posting a vid with still pics - they ROCK and really do take you right into the lyrics of the song:
Cheerz & have a HUGE day!!
